About Me:

Hey! I'm here to make new friends so just drop me a note. If you have any questions, ask and I'll be happy to share the limited knowledge I've managed to pick up so far. ;-)

Get to know me better at EKaiserWrites.webs.com
I blog at E. Kaiser Writes-A-Blog
On FB at: E. Kaiser writes.
Google+: E. kaiser Writes
And Twitter: EKaiserWrites
Stop by and say something! Connect! ;-)

I'm also on Goodreads now, so if you need a friend on there shoot me a line! E. Kaiser.

My books are mostly fantasy/fairytale type adventures; I'm super excited about Prince of Demargen being a possible for the Realm Award!

Sibling Finder: I only have one on HSA; so without further ado he-e-ere's Abigail! Abi of Nebraska. She's shy, so send her a friend request! (Tell her I sent you! :-) ) She's also not on here as much as I am, so don't be alarmed if you don't hear back from her immediately!

I live with my family on a mid-sized farm/ranch above the Rebuplican River. While several of my siblings engage in the family business of horses; training, buying-training-and-selling; I am part of the 'house crew' with my Mom and youngest, 'part-time', sister. I know that I have the greatest team ever in my corner with me, and I love them to pieces, even when we can't agree... "love knoweth no bounds".
We garden extensively, (can, dry, freeze,) cook everything from scratch, and keep a herd of premium quality Alpines, which are one of our, (Abi's and mine,) pride-and-joy's. [Can that be puralized?]
We also enjoy sewing, quilting, and most old fashioned handcrafts... if we haven't done it, we are interested in learning!

In pursuit of greater independence food-wise, in 2008 I took on the quest of bee keeping, which is still a learning curve for me. Have had a little trouble with them, but we still have live insects, so we're hanging in there! Looking forward to honey harvests, (hopefully!) which will make it all worth while. [Update; after four years, they had all died, and I haven't had the heart to restart.]
I am an incorrigible dreamer, and castles in the clouds are mainly what I grew up in. I still love words in all forms; poem, story and song, and writing is an outlet I enjoy very much.

I am interested in learning... so many things that can't be taught, only caught. There are so many things out there just waiting for an inquiring mind... I can't get to them all. But I enjoy meeting, wrestling and conquering the ones that cross my path. (Okay, I don't actually Enjoy It until after the fact...)

Home-schooled all the way, I am deeply thankful to have had unhindered access to the Lord's amazing creation from the very first. So many things are so easy to see when 'real' reaches out and takes your hand. I have been blessed to have grown up in places and with a way of living many people hope for on vacations.

My passion is being the best steward possible. At this time I deeply feel that includes unearthing a way of living that can go on and on... independent of the crazy things happening all around the world. Not completely there yet, but well on the way and making strides with every year.
...So many things to learn!

Favorite Books: 

Recovering Bookworm here... this is a hard question!
Robert Louis Stevenson,
Tolkien,
Too many to list...
& Many, many instructional books.
Enjoyed 'Time and the Art of Living', by Robert Grudin. Great book, very thought provoking... it more 'asks the right questions' than 'gives the right anwsers'.
Also, I enjoyed Watership Down... loved the way the author turned rabbits into characters that were full of life, and still 'rabbit-ish'. Very clever writing.


Favorite Music: 

Enya,
Michael Card,
Il Divo, (Mama; Regressa a mi...)
Celine Dion, (That's the Way It Is...)
Golden Oldies Tunes, not so much a lot of the lyrics...
A lot of times I will like a song or two of an artist, but not their others. So I would best describe it as 'Eclectic'! ;-)
